We’ve heard all of the rumors about Amazon introducing a sequel to the insanely popular Amazon Kindle Fire tablet. With a 7 inch screen and a low price of $199, Amazon started a new category of such tablets. Apple is also expected to throw their hat (tablet) into the 7 inch ring as early as next month, with a 7.85 incher. So now is a good time for Amazon to introduce this rumored sequel.
The question is this. Will Amazon stick with the 7 inch market or is there a larger tablet in the works? Maybe both? We should know for sure on September 6th. That’s when Amazon will host an event that it has sent out invitations for. This event will most likely be all about announcing this new tablet or tablets.
This will come a day after the Motorola/Verizon event that will presumably introduce the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and the Nokia/Microsoft event at which the first two Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 models should be announced. It’s their best option since they don’t want to go up against the Apple iPhone 5 and the Apple iPad mini in the media.
